Do you have a CCW? Ever had training regarding shooting and moving? Drawing and shooting from a holster? Clearing a house? Ever wanted to learn how to fight and survive in a gun fight? If you answered yes to any of these questions then this is the class for you! It will be a full day of training regarding the mental mindset, planning, carrying, shooting and moving, along with a lot more. This course is being offered at Burro Canyon Shooting Park for a cost of $130. Class reservations need to be made by February 10th at 5pm. To reserve your spot PM me on here or send an email to dharlow at 5arrowstactical.com. Payment can be cash, check, money order, credit card, or prepay through the website here.

The course will be taught and shot regardless of the weather so plan accordingly. You will shoot between 150 - 200 rounds and are responsible to bring your own ammo. In addition bring snacks, drinks, eye and ear protection, along with weather appropriate clothing. As always please contact me with me with any questions you might have. Hope to see you there!

This is the second time that I have attended Darren's Tac Pistol (Level 1) class up at Burro Canyon. I come away from the class always learning something new and always refining my skills. After taking this class I have trouble going to an ordinary indoor range and not being able to "get off the X". This class has real world application for anyone who plans to CCW or seriously improve their firearms skills beyond just plinking at the range.

Self Defense Pistol Level 1 10/25/2014

Great class for a pistol shooter. We had all skills in the class from multi time class takers to first time class takers. A great variety of guns in the class helps one see how each drill can be different for the gun choice. Started the day with some discussion then the range safety brief. Once we stated shooting there was always a drill going on for somebody in the class. The first time class people were good shooters and familiar with gun safety just first time taking a class. The pace moved with the abilities of the class and always time for questions.

Darren & Mark split the class in half and worked us in two different groups. By the end of the day we were having a lot of fun and teasing each other while working drills. It wasn't play time at all its business but in a fun way. This class is totally worth the money and I can't wait to do it again. Thanks to my shooting partner Gina for all the help and competition!

I recommend 5 Arrows to anybody looking for a very informative class without a high pressure atmosphere or drill sergeant mentality.

I took the class yesterday with my wife and we both had a great experience. Class was small (10) and Darren and Mark did an exceptional job. From beginning to end we covered safety, various moving a shooting drills, failures, etc. Great attitudes, very helpful instructions and a wide array of moving drills made this an exceptional class. Highly recommended, and with the option to attend again for a small fee, I'm sure we will be back for more.

Just took the tactical Shotgun w/Handgun class and highly recommend the class and the organization. Very professional with good 1x1 time. Doing this type of course has changed my mindset on range plinking. Shooting with a purpose of training a new skill or honing a current one is how I want to shoot moving forward. I will be doing their pistol class next saturday. Another cool thing is if you have already attended a class, you can re-attend it at a discounted rate which is nice... the more practice the better you will get.

This looks like a pretty good and informational class for the price! I am leaning 99.9% to sign up. I need to get a holster first, then I am good to go.

Hope to see you at the class.
